The problem is not the distro packaging of kdelibs. The problem is our 
packaging of kdelibs: one tarball.

The problem is the inverse: you remember that you can compile kdefoo 4.3 
with kdelibs 4.4. So, how do you do it?

You need to download kdelibs 4.3, build it, install only the libraries 
you're interested in. Then you download kdelibs 4.4, build it and install 
the full thing.

That's what we're trying to avoid.
